Amy Adejokun Section editor

The only thing exotic about Bahia Beach is its name. Not only is the hotel is a far cry from a Brazilian pousada, the beach is over 150 m away. However, although there's nothing very original about this place, the leisure facilities and entertainment mean that you can still enjoy a pleasant holiday with family or friends.

    Location 6.0 /10

    Nestled at the heart of the tourist resort of Yasmine Hammamet (the most recent in the area), the Bahia Beach stands some 150 m from its own private beach. Transfer time from Tunis airport is around 45 minutes, whilst Monastir airport is around an hour away. You might also be interested to know that the hotel is 2,5 mi from the Citrus and Yasmine golf clubs.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    Although all of the 200 guest rooms (consisting of double, triple and quadruple rooms), 63 of which were built in 2002, are housed in the main building, some can be accessed via the gardens, resulting in a considerable amount of time gained for those who find themselves at the end of the corridor! The rooms are patiently awaiting renovation to replace the currently rather outdated style consisting of beige curtains and bedspreads and green furniture, for example. In fact, were it not for the Berber bedside rugs, you might even forget you were in Tunisia!
    There's not a great deal of originality when it comes to the amenities either - just a television, phone and central air conditioning, with a mini-bar available on request and safe deposit boxes available at reception only. You'll also, no doubt, be disappointed with the view, as the new extension blocks the only outlook to the sea, so guests have to make do with a view of the gardens or the swimming pool for now.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Despite the 4 stars displayed so proudly at the entrance to the Bahia Beach, they seem to have forgotten to inform the gloomy lobby and the rather outdated communal areas of this, as well as the gym and the mini-club, which could all do with a drastic makeover. Despite its tired appearance though, the Bahia Beach does take the maintenance of its premises very seriously. Regular work is carried out in the main building and on the various facilities dotted around the 12 acre grounds; indeed, the buffet in the restaurant has already been done up and the guest rooms are in the process of being redecorated. The hotel also has various sports courts and pitches and a small health centre complete with two affusion showers, a hydromassage bath, four massage rooms and a beauty room.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    Like the majority of hotels in the area, the Bahia Beach has a main restaurant and two snack bars open during high season - one on the beach and one by the pool. One important thing to remember is that drinks and light snacks from the beach bar are included in the all-inclusive option, but those staying on a full-board or half-board basis will need to get their wallets out.
    The hotel's main restaurant can accommodate up to 220 covers and serves a rather unoriginal international buffet along with one or two local dishes. Three theme nights, namely Tunisian, Italian and Mediterranean, are organised every week, though it really is a shame there isn't a separate little à la carte restaurant. After completing the renovation work on the buffet, the management plans to get started on the terrace furnishings. Watch this space...

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The rather inappropriately named Bahia Beach is actually 150 m from its private beach, which is supervised as of 8:00am, and since no shuttle service, free or otherwise, is provided by the hotel, the only way to get there is on foot! Once you get there, though, you'll find everything you need for a lazy afternoon, including 300 plastic deck chairs, parasols, etc. - all provided free of charge by the hotel. In terms of the setting, there's really nothing to fault: fine sand and clear waters all around! There is also an independent water sports centre where more adventurous guests can pay to try their hand at various activities, including jet-skiing, parasailing, banana boat rides, wind-surfing, kayaking, pedal-boating and water-skiing.

    To know

    Built in 1998, the Bahia Beach, just like its companion, the Tunisia Lodge, is managed by the Tunisian chain Gesthobel. Various maintenance work has been carried out at the hotel since 2005 in order to bring it into line with the relevant safety and quality standards.

      • Location 4.12

      Although its name might evoke luxurious accommodation options found in South Africa or stylish mountain chalets, the Tunisia Lodge really could not be further removed from such establishments! The only features in this hotel with any connection to the great outdoors are the plants in the lobby and the waterfall in the swimming pool. The remainder of the Tunisia Lodge looks just like any other city hotel, and as the establishment is 450m from the Mediterranean, it is one to avoid if your main concern is staying somewhere with easy beach access.
